Nice shapes, large pieces but takes some work By cee on 1/29/2014
cee would recommend this product to a friend
The rock is fairly clean but expect some dead matter. It does leach phosphate so it needs some preparation before adding it to a tank. I acid washed and then used lanthanum chloride to precipitate out the phosphate but it does take a few weeks. It is large for its weight and comes in nice "inverted pyramid" shapes.

The rock was a lot bigger than I imagined, it came in two large chunks and a few smaller pieces. The rock was pretty clean for the most part, overall I'm very happy with the rock, I wish I would have bought this rock from the beginning I would have saved a ton!

Great rock for the price. Light, porous. It was a lot larger rock than I expected. I asked for certain sizes and brs delivered. This rock has allowed for my pods to flourish because of its porousness and hard to get to places. Easy to manipulate and create custom aquascapes.
Pukani By Bluethunder on 1/14/2014
Bluethunder would recommend this product to a friend
Just received my rocks, ordered 50lbs for a 45 gallon tank. My guess 10-15 lbs too much, but nice to have extra rock for the future. I highly recommend. If you buy this rock watch BRS video on aquascaping with Pukani, I did and was real pleased with the outcome and how the tank looks (not a pile of rock, if you know what I mean..). Also plenty of interesting and strategic surface area to add coral.
Product was very well packaged, considering how fragile the rock appears very surprised all pieces arrived intact.
Great stuff guys and thank you for your support and knowledge base!!!
Dissatisfied selection By Rob on 1/13/2014

I ordered 40lbs of Pukani and 20lbs of tonga complex multi branch. To start with this was my Customer Note"I will be combining these two rock in attempt to make a bonsai style feature. This is going into a 300g tank so it is just the beginning of rock. Please do your best to make the Pukani larger pieces. I am sure you guys can pick it better than I can. Cant wait to see your choices, Thanks!
The Pukani came is with with ten pieces 4"-6" and five pieces 7"-10". Not what I was expecting. But the rock is very lite.
The 20lbs of Tonga is one piece. Extremely dense.
The packing and shipping time is second to none, as always. Very little breakage with the Pukani, and zero breakage with the Tonga.

Very Clean and Porous Live Rock By Roman on 1/3/2014
Roman would recommend this product to a friend
Received live rock with almost no rubble, a little bigger pieces than I expected. Also lighter than I anticipated, so I ended up used only half of live rock that I ordered.
The rock was extremely clean and had very little detritus, after rinsing it for couple minutes I put it in the tank with a few pieces of real live rock from LFS to seed. To my surprise I didn't observe any ammonia/nitrite spikes and was able to add livestock to my tank just after one week of adding the rock.

I was very curious about this rock when I first heard about it. So after a few months of doing whatever the woman that sleeps next to me at night "wife" i finally talked her into letting me get 15 more pounds of rock. She doesn't understand "rock". So then I received the few pieces that actually weighed a little more than 15 pounds after I cleaned roughly 3-4 of decaying material I was impressed. So I've got to figure out how to buy abojt 30 more pounds. At least. Haha. Wonderful buy. Again

I received my rock about a week ago. It's now soaking in salt water to removeany debri that may have come along with the rock. I ordered 65lbs and it filled a 40 gallon tank. To fill a40 gallon tank with locally purchased rock.Would have likely cost me apx 5 times as much. So far I'm very happy with the selection they sent me. I may fallow up after putting it in my display if I find it necessary.

I recently purchased 59 lbs of rock from you guys. After the U.P.S guy struggled with the box up my stairs! I weighed the box and had just under 67 lbs. Three big pieces and the rest were nice mini basketball sized pieces. No rubble, found it a breeze to work with. I was able to cut it, aquascape just how I wanted it! I was even able to carve a piece into an Easter island head!! You truly knocked it out of the park BRS!!!

The individual pieces look great but it's hard to make them flow together. I tried chiseling and sculpting but it's WAY harder than I though. It is very large for its weight. Next time I will use reefsaver. So not perfect but it's ok.

I went with reef saver for my larger display tank. Wanted to try something different for a cube I'm building so I went with the pukani. I think it has a more natural look than reef saver, but I still prefer reef saver in larger applications because it so easy to aquascape with.

It is amazing how light and porous this rock is. I ordered 25 lbs, and it came as three very large chunks with some smaller pieces to make up the weight.
I was able to use one of the pieces directly, but I had to break up the bigger pieces to get everything into my tank.
I would highly recommend this rock to anyone for unique aquascaping and the ability to chisel the rock into the shapes you want in the tank.
This is the way to go By Cameron on 9/29/2013
Cameron would recommend this product to a friend
Dry rock is definitely the way to go. I have not bought any of the other types offered here just the Pukani so cannot compare but I definitely like the Pukani. As mentioned by BRS it is cheap, easy to aquascape, and very porous. This rock is so much more porous than any of the live rock I have seen in any stores. It is great I have two peppermint shrimp and most of the time cannot find them because they are inside the rocks and my rocks and tank are not that big. There is definitely an initial nutrient leaching but you can cycle the rock or just make sure you have a good clean up crew (sea hares are probably the best at that). My rock is already covered in coralline algae and I have only had it for a few months. I used a small piece of live rock from the fish store to seed my tank, as well as whatever came in with the coral frags I have added (which i think added more than the live rock piece really). No complaints at all; I bought 20 more lbs. for when I upgrade to a 40 gallon.

I purchased 30lb of Pukani Rock and was 100% satisfied when I opened the box. I have always purchased LR from my local fish store and this was my first experience trying this. I'm starting a new 90 gallon build and this was a much more cost efficient way to go about it. Wish I would have bought more. Very happy I found BRS online and couldn't be happier with the quikness of the shipment and service. Thank you.
mega Phosphates By Join the Revolution on 9/2/2013
Join the Revolution would recommend this product to a friend
Love the rock, hate the untold P04 it leaches. I set up an existing 25 gallon cube with BRS dry rock, and after a few weeks hair algae started to sprout up everywhere. I tested a control sample and found that the dry rock was leaching P04. According to other online forums, this is a well documented cons in using this rock. So if you use it, prepare for an algae bloom. Run Phosban or other P04 reduction methods.
I would still recommend the headache of this product, in the end Im being hopeful its just temporary. I will report back in 6 months.

I ordered a "small" amount to see if it was good stuff. IT WAS AWESOME!!!! Rocks are BIG, tons of crevices, very porous, easy to pop frag plugs in. It came VERY well packed in a box full of Styrofoam peanuts with almost no rubble. It is fragile and I broke off a couple of parts by hand. A 6 lb rock was about 1 foot across! Way better than stuff at the LFS. I WILL BUY AGAIN!!!!
Gorgeous rock... By Pat on 7/10/2013

Most people would call people like us, who order rocks from a website crazy, but I don't care. This rock is gorgeous. It's light, super porous, and full of nooks and crannys to stick stuff in and things to hide in.
Although the general "pattern" of the rocks are about the same, they come in different shapes and look amazing.
All of the rocks came intact and there was some rubble, but I'm pretty sure it was from the UPS guy that had to move a 65lb literal box of rocks. I requested two large pieces for a double island effect I have in mind and they more than delivered. The two pieces are HUGE! One unfortunately has to be broken down into a smaller piece so I can fit it in my 75g.
As with what the other customers have reported back, I ordered 55lbs and received 65lbs!

Buy the rock and review when you get live growth. Still waiting. Next time I will buy live. I love the shape of the rock, unfortunately, it is fake dead, meaning no life has ever been on it. therefore no life will grow -yet? 1 year later, a little better than dead some tiny of algae-I think.
Regardless, please re post and keep us informed. Too bad pictures can"t be uploaded on this site. Love BRS. on the fence with the "alien rock".

Love the Pukani Rock. I bought about 25 lbs dry with 10lbs reef saver and used some Live Fiji locally to seed it for a 65g tank. This rock is less dense than reef saver or Fiji. It looks fanatastic. I only wish I had bought more. I got exactly the kind a pieces I requested when I wrote a note in the notes section. Great customer service from BRS.

I ordered the 50 lbs fiji rock bulk buy the first time from BRS and I was impressed with what I received. I begin to run out of places to mount my corals so I decided to purchase the pukani dry rock. Man! I should've bought this rock the first time. My 20 lbs order almost looked as much as the 50 lbs Fiji I bought earlier. The .70 difference is well worth it. Very porous, more room for creativity on aquascaping, and very, very light. You will not be dissappointed, it's more rock for the price.

I'm so in love of these rocks they look beautiful and amazing in my tank. I asked BRS to send me the best selection of rocks for my 46 gallon Bow Front tank, and they definitely did it. They sent me 4 large rocks and 1 small (I ordered 30 pounds). The rock they chose for me was just PERFECT! I was able to carve the caves I so much wanted for my aquarium. I worked the rock just as they show in their videos and everything went well. I would like to post a picture of the rocks so you can see them, but they don't have that option in here. But if you are thinking in buying this rock, you can be sure you won't regret it!
Thanks BRS, you guys rock!
